Dataguise Security Sandbox Offers Fast and Easy Onramp for Enterprises Needing to Protect Sensitive Data

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Dataguise®, the leading provider of Big Data security and protective intelligence solutions, today announced at Hadoop Summit the immediate availability of the Dataguise DgSecure™ data protection platform with the Hortonworks HDP 2.1 Sandbox. The Dataguise Security Sandbox is available as a free download from the Hortonworks site, providing a fast onramp for any organization needing to protect sensitive data and address compliance and data governance in Apache™ Hadoop®. Through close integration into the Hortonworks security framework, Dataguise delivers highly-scalable, easy-to-deploy data-centric protection, while offering unique data discovery, automated masking and encryption, and comprehensive visibility of where sensitive data moves, changes, and gets accessed across all workloads in Hadoop environments. DgSecure complements Hortonworks' recent acquisition of XA Secure and the stack of comprehensive security capabilities needed for enterprise Hadoop.

"As a Certified Technology Partner, Dataguise helps enable our joint customers to discover and protect both structured and unstructured data in Hadoop, whether in motion or at rest, using a very granular approach to security available for Hadoop environments," said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing at Hortonworks. "What's exciting for enterprises is that through our Sandbox integration and Dataguise's best-of-breed data protection, we're now able to offer a flexible and quick path to implement comprehensive security for enterprise Hadoop."

The Hortonworks Sandbox is a personal, portable Hadoop environment, packaged up in a virtual environment so enterprises can be up and running in a matter of minutes. As a Hortonworks Certified Technology Partner, Dataguise enables organizations across various industries, including financial services, healthcare, retail and government, to leverage the analytical power of Hadoop and still maintain compliance and complete data protection. Dataguise's data protection platform is closely integrated in Hortonworks' data security blueprint, with comprehensive authentication, authorization, and accounting capabilities provided by Apache Knox and XA Secure. This close collaboration enables enterprises to identify and protect sensitive data across all structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data going into Hadoop.

The Dataguise Security Sandbox includes the following capabilities:

  • Policy Definition: Select pre-built policy templates like PCI, PII and HIPAA. Or, click-and-pick to easily define custom policies with no coding or scripting.
  • Data Discovery: Automatically find and track sensitive data in Hadoop, whether at rest or in motion, in structured or unstructured format.
  • Data Protection: Efficiently and effectively implement data-centric data masking, redaction and encryption strategies, down to the most granular data element level.
  • Analytics: View dashboards and reports on sensitive-data discovery, data lineage and protection results to assess security risks and facilitate compliance and data governance

"In order to realize the benefits of Big Data, enterprises are getting more proactive about addressing security, privacy and risk in Hadoop. Compliance concerns around credit card information, social security numbers, customer addresses and personal health records are just a few examples of sensitive data that needs to be protected," said Patty Nghiem, vice president of marketing and business development at Dataguise. "Enterprises now have a quick and easy way to proactively address security, compliance and risk in the Hortonworks Sandbox before going into production."
